Fastest Muscle Cars (Gauntlet Hellfire) in GTA 5, showing an updated countdown of the best fully upgraded muscle cars ranked on top speed. Expand the description for full info.

This series aims to show the best vehicles to use in GTA Online in terms of top speed. That is, in long straight line races with minimal cornering. The word “Fastest” means nothing without some context – these are the fastest vehicles in terms of top speed. For the fastest vehicles around a circuit (for regular races for example) check out the Lap Time Testing series here:
How Top Speed Values Were Calculated Accurately
The highest constant speed a vehicle can achieve after acceleration has stopped determines its top speed and its place in this list.
Speed = Distance ÷ Time
– Speed is what we’re looking for.
– Distance is exactly 0.2 miles, measured in the content creator from the first checkpoint to the second.
– Time is how long it takes each car to hit the second checkpoint after hitting the first.
**Due to YouTube description length limits the information that should be placed here has been removed and can be read in full here: I recommend reading this for anyone who is confused, interested, or doubts the validity of the results in this video as it explains in great detail exactly how the values displayed were found, in addition to showing an example of the calculations used to measure top speed accurately.**
One thing to point out is that there are a lot of variables when it comes to top speed in GTA Online which could lead to different (and higher) top speeds in various circumstances. However beyond all of that is the fact that in-game speedometers and other forms of speed measurements either don’t work or at the very least are inaccurate (see here: so if you’re basing your own observations on that then you will most likely be getting wrong results.
This testing has been done to minimise variables as much as possible and make it repeatable/verifiable. Anybody should be able to repeat this testing on the same track and find the same results. However individuals may find different results to this if they’re testing in a different way, such as going uphill or downhill, taking advantage of kerb boosting (see here: racing against others online (never an accurate determinant due to connectivity and variation in driving), using mods or single player abilities, and even using the left stick too much to correct the steering whilst trying to keep in a straight line. I am simply reporting the actual top speeds of these cars when fully upgraded, on a flat road with no external factors and identical testing methods. Most tests were carried out on PS4 with a small number on PC at 30fps.
